The ending of this was the best part--which may be the case with many books, but it was thrilling figuring everything out and watching it come together. I found the descriptions somewhat lacking, but when McCaffrey did go into detail, it was marvelous!

Lessa and F'lar must ave Pern from Thread (deadly spores that fall from space and devour organic material).

Dragons help.

This series sure has its fanatical followers, but I just couldn't get into it. The human characters lacked depth while the dragons were nothing more than cardboard cutouts (especially when compared to dragons with an actual personality, such as Temeraine). The author pulls a rabbit out of her hat to solve a problem (it's still deus ex machina, even if the author dropped a few paragraphs earlier in the book hinting at the surprise ending).

The first story of Lessa and how she becomes a dragon woman. One of my favorites in the McCaffrey series.
